Vishal Phasale, an Abhinav Kala Mahavidyalay alumnus, focuses on figurative compositions that represent Indian classical dance forms and their mudrikas. Nuances from a variety of folk dance forms come alive in Vishal’s canvases through a concentration of lines, colors and textures. Painting is an inward spiritual journey for him. Artist through mudrikas and dancer’s silhouette convey his interpretation of the relationship between the dancer and her inner world. While Vishal Phasale has been working on this theme of classical dance forms over the last four years, he is equally adept at exploring other thematics in the same genre of semi-abstract figurative painting. The artist uses both brush strokes and pallette knife techniques.
